Carlton Brass have been placed an extremely pleasing second place at today’s Bolsover Brass Festival first section entertainments contest 06/11/2013. Drawn number one and a start time that preceded the bar opening (surely illegal) the band played an excellent quality programme that impressed the adjudicator Dr Keith Wilkinson.
Congratulations to all members of Carlton Brass for an excellent result, but special thanks to our new MD Wink Watson who has pulled all this together. A job really well done.
Thanks also to our borrowed players, Chris, Luella, Shelby and Rob. Your help was very much appreciated.
Well done Silk Brass on winning, and also to our friends at Leicester Coop who won most entertaining band and overall third place. The facilities at Heritage School are very good, and we hope to be back next year.
